The Kayalu KLA-5072 Track Mount Eye enables a Kayalu "Secure-Attach" product (Kayalite, Kayacam, etc.) to be easily clipped to, mounted securely on, and detached from any standard kayak/canoe gear track.
The Track Mount Eye can be used on wide and narrow gear tracks. No additional components are needed for mounting a Kayalite on a wide gear track, one having a minimum width of at least 1.5 inch (4 cm)
For narrow gear tracks, we've developed a do-it-yourself solution (further described below) that creates a durable and stable mounting platform under the Track Mount Eye, perfectly suited for the Kayalite base to mate with.
The Kayalu Track Mount Eye is manufactured of premium marine-grade Type 304 stainless steel, compatible with all freshwater and saltwater applications.
A removable spacer included with the Track Mount Eye protects the track surface from scratches. The track nut included with the Track Mount Eye has a width of .47" (12mm), compatible with all standard tracks.
Mounting a Kayalite on a Wide Gear Track
As shown in the image at upper left, the Track Mount Eye can be used for mounting a Kayalite directly on top of any gear track having a track upper surface width of at least 1.5 inch (4 cm) including:
• YakAttack® MightyMount XL™ Track
• RAM Mounts® Tough-Track™ Top-Loading Composite
• Scotty® Low Profile Gear Track
• Other tracks with an upper surface width of at least 1.5 inch (4 cm)
Mounting a Kayalite on a Narrow Gear Track
When mounting a Kayalite on a narrow gear track, one having a mounting surface of under 1.5 inch (4 cm) as shown below, we've developed a simple but very effective DIY solution using our Track Mount Eye along with 1 or 2 unused CD-ROMs as a stabilizing platform.
Example narrow gear tracks having a width of less than 1.5 inch (4 cm) include:
• YakAttack® Gear Trac (all models including Generation II shown above)
• RAM Mounts® Tough-Track™
• Scotty® Plastic Slide Track
